How to keep your husband’s love? Or, where shall we get the wisest counsel on how to make your man continue to love you? Of course, the light always comes from the Holy Bible. Martin Luther (where the Lutheran church got its name), for example, has this piece of advice: “Let the wife make the husband glad to come home, and let him make her sorry to see him leave.” To keep your husband’s love is not difficult at all if you are the typical Bible-described wife. God said that the woman must obey her husband.
One significant question is that if we are real born-again Christians, do we need to celebrate or observe the Holy Week? In just a mouse click away, we could google dozens of the list of religious holidays (or holydays?)

Understanding physical death from the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Holy Scriptures is, therefore, second to none in significance.
How is one piece of wood, the so-called Black Narazene, making both news and history every January of each year in the Philippines since Catholic “devotees” worshiped it as a miraculous idol for hundreds of years? The Black Nazarene symbolizes the ordinary Filipinos’ Catholicism and devotion to a god made of wood. “Not at all,” protested the learned academicians and intellectuals who were into the Black Nazarene worship, too. It is how deep the Black Nazarene cult has permeated into the matrix of the Filipino faith system for over 200 years.
There are four types of love: 1) Philia or close friendship or brotherly love (Romans 12:10); 2) Agape or selfless, sacrificial, unconditional love (e.g. Christ’s love – John 14:21); 3) Eros (erotic) or physical and sensual love, e.g., between husband and wife (1 Corinthians 7:8-9; 4) Storge or family love (Exodus 20:12).
